My dishwasher is not cleaning the dishes on the
There is a pipe/tube that runs up the back of the inside of your dishwasher. This provides water for the top spray arm. The spray arm has a feeder tube that covers the pipe in the back. If for some reason the feeder tube has come dislodged, the water just drips back down into the dishwasher, never touching your upper shelf. My kids used to jam cutting boards and other large items into the lower shelf and in so doing, would dislodge the upper spray arm feeder tube. Just pull out the upper shelf and check to see that the tube is in the correct position. This should solve the problem.
If not, then the spray arm may have debris in it that keeps the water from being forced through the jets. You'll need to flush the arm with the spray attachment on your kitchen sink. I sometimes use tweezers or a toothpick to dislodge bits of peelings, paper, or bone that manage to get into the sprayer arm.
I hope one of these tips helps. If it does,please come back to fixya and rate my answer.

I have a fridgidaire Gallery
Most likely the wash sump is blocked. Refer this diagram
. You will have to open the sump (item 14) and look for the golf ball type device (item 58). This must be stuck in the drain position. This dishwasher uses common sump for wash and drain and the ball acts like a valve to direct water in the proper direction.
Not sure if you replaced the motor assembly because the motor was not working or because you felt it was linked to the water not circulating.
Hope this helps fix the problem. Please rate the solution to help fixya serve you better in future.
